My first thought was Neoplan. Or maybe it's something locally built or made for Nicaragua?

Are we even sure this scene was filmed in Managua ? There's a german Hanomag-Henschel truck, and an old - and equally german - Mercedes-Benz bus.

Not sure, I don't find any information about the real filming locations. But for the Merc bus: It was very old and what happen to old vehicles nowadays? - They go to Africa for example and back then probably too. I just can say what they said in the episodes where these scenes are set...

even more astonishing: a man from KFZ Instandhaltung Plauen was in Nicaragua 1985 - 1988 and later became boss of Neoplan Plauen
Neoplan was the first specializing in airport busses, Basically a Jetliner was it made for Managua airport, or locally assembled in Middle- or South America?
There has been a plant in Ghana for e.g.

Nice anecdote, but definitely without any coherence.
Abroad there was never any connection between East and West German expats.
A time ago I talked with the guy, who was the W50- and MZ-representant in Egypt. And I read the same in books about Nicaragua and Vietnam in the 80ies.

Yes, it seems it was simply a special order for german main plant, special in that way: make it look like american bus.
